reIgniteJoCo 2019 CvHS has ended
Reminder you will be building your own credit at the close of this event.  Each session will count 1.2 hours towards your credit.  You will collect certificates throughout the event to submit in MyLearningPlan at the conclusion of reIGNITE 2019. Digital Sessions will require the Digital Learning Artifact: bit.ly/jcpsdlcartifact.

Note: If you are attending with your PLC members you might consider signing up for the same reIGNITE Calibration session (Learn 1) so that you can have common language in the coming year.

Flipping the Script: Exploring the 3 Acts of an Oscar Worthy Math Class AVAILABLE

Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
The session aims to increase teacher understanding of and comfort with:
*Implementing engaging tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving.
*Providing low floor, high ceiling tasks to promote equity and access.
*Building relationships through the facilitation of meaningful discourse.
*Increasing student voice and ownership in the problems they solve and strategies they use.
*Posing purposeful questions.
*Supporting productive struggle.
*Transitioning from teacher centered to student centered instruction.

This session will challenge the tenants of a traditional math class by challenging teachers to be less helpful, allowing their students call the shots in the using the 3 Act Approach. Participants will immerse themselves in a 3-Act Task as a learner, then dive deeper into the structures and supports of a successful 3-Act Task. They will explore how 3-Act Tasks provide all students with access to mathematics in a way that is highly engaging and develops their agency and curiosity as learners.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Participants will participate in a 3 Act Task as a Learner so that the process is modeled for them. The lesson will be housed in a Google Webpage including Vimeos. Participants will then compare engagement, student agency, content delivery and real-world implications of this type of lessons to that of a traditional math lesson with direct instruction and practice. Interviews of students from FOES will be included about their experiences with 3 Act Tasks.

3 Act Process
Act 1:  Setting the Hook/Creating a NEED to do math.
Participants will view a quick video clip of a real world situation to spark curiosity.  Participants notice and wonder about what they see.  Participants pose questions and define a problem that is worth their time to solve. 
Act 2:  Gathering Tools/Information
Participants estimate possible solutions.  Participants identify additional resources and information needed to solve their problem.  The facilitator provides information only when asked by the participant.  Participants work on solving their problem/answering their question.
Act 3:  The Reveal
Participants share their answers/solutions and discuss strategies.  The facilitator reveals the actual answer.  Discussion follows about reasonableness of estimates, answers, and strategies.
